2nd Grade: Op Art Introduction
Students were introduced to the 1960s art movement phenomenon Op Art, which stands for Optical Illusions. Showing 1960s images while teaching vocabulary such as three-dimensional versus two-dimensional we talked about how simple lines can create 3D forms. Students were asked to trace their hand on one small square sheet of paper and a circle on another for their Op Art subjects. Students had to color in their work using cool colors in a pattern on one and warm colors in a pattern on another.
